President Obama Named Time Magazine's Person of the Year for 2012

Obama Named Time Magazine Person of the Year
For the second time, Time magazine has named President Barack Obama as its "Person of the Year" for 2012, and has placed him on the cover of their latest December 2012/ January 2013 issue. He was also named "Person of the Year" in 2008.

Editor Richard Stengel says Obama is being recognized for "finding and forging a new majority, for turning weakness into opportunity and for seeking, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union." He added that it was remarkable that the president won two terms with over 50 percent of the popular vote as a Democrat, and noted that Obama took office in an economic crisis, and credited him with creating a new political "alignment like Ronald Reagan did forty years ago".

Other finalists and runners-ups also profiled include: Pakistan women's rights activist Malala Yousafzai), Apple CEO Tim Cook, Egyptian leader Mohammed Morsi, and Higgs boson physicist Fabiola Gianotti.
